Learn how to minimize risk and continuously improve your security posture using the Alliant cybersecurity guide for implementing a security operations framework at your organization.

Business Email Compromise

Human error causes about 90% of cyberattacks. Further, Verizon’s Data Breach Investigations Report of 2019 shows that one in three all cybersecurity breaches involve a business email being compromised through a phishing attack.

CMMC

CMMC compliance is primarily based on safeguarding any data or information created or possessed by the government or any entity on the government’s behalf across the DoD’s supply chain.

Compliance

The majority of mid-market businesses are under the mistaken belief that, unlike the big corporations, they need not worry about cybersecurity. The facts, however, show that small and medium businesses are the primary targets for cyber attacks, making up 43 percent of all attacks versus all other entity types.

Cyber Insurance

Cyber Insurance is a relatively new concept, but it is in huge demand recently and rightly so as ransomware attacks are on the rise. Of late, cyber insurance providers are under a lot of pressure to change their requirements for coverage, since many businesses are not taking proper precautions.

DDOS

A Denial of Service (DoS) attack is a method where an attacker overloads your connected resource or server with traffic that does not respond to any requests. That is, the attacker is connecting to your server with fake traffic.

Federal Data Regulations

The two biggest market segments that suffer the most data breaches are public sector entities and small and medium-sized businesses. The federal government continually attempts to address cyber issues through regulations and spends $15 billion a year on cybersecurity.

Ransomware

Ransomware as the name suggests is a type of malware installed by an attacker to prevent you from assessing some or all of the data on your system or locks you out from controlling any part of your network and demands a ransom for its release.

Supply Chain Cyberattacks

Your business is also likely part of a greater supply chain and being cyber secure requires each link in that chain do its part. Many of the large cyberattacks in the news are often the result of a supply chain vendor with lax cyber defenses being exploited so that hackers can hit their clients.

Types of Cyberattacks

It is estimated that the cybercrime economy is worth about $1.5 trillion annually. In contrast, the federal government provides only $15 billion dollars in funding for cyber security. This means companies are often left to defend themselves from the dangers of the web.
